Cliff Diver kicks off the heart-stopping Detective Emilia Cruz police series confronting drug cartels and official corruption. This is the Mexico of El Chapo, Narcos, and relationships with heat.
Emilia Cruz clawed her way up the ladder to become the first female police detective in Acapulco. She’ll fight to keep the job, too, even if her lieutenant is a dirty cop and the other detectives try to kick her out.
When the lieutenant is murdered, Emilia is assigned to lead the investigation. Soon the man’s sordid sex life, money laundering, and involvement in a kidnapping double-cross combine to create an ugly mess no one wants exposed.
The high profile murder case could wreck Emilia’s career, which is probably why she was handed the case. Under pressure from Acapulco’s ambitious mayor and the head of the police union, Emilia faces the ultimate choice. Truth or survival?
